Chih-Wei Huang of the Android-x86 project posted a notice to the project’s Google Groups mailing list stating that ISO images of the new 2.2 build are available!
If you’ve got one of the supported devicesâ€”including many in the Asus Eee line, Viewsonic ViewPad 10 and Dell Inspiron Mini Duoâ€”then head on over and snag the appropriate image for your device and give it a go. There’s also a generic image available, appropriate for running within VirtualBox. I just snagged it myself and got it running within VirtualBox in minutes.
And the images are “Live CDs”, too. So if you want to simply give Froyo a try without having to dedicate hard drive space or sink time into a full install, you can!
There are a few known issues, though. According to the release notes:
- Camera doesn’t work well
- Wifi and Ethernet cannot be turned on simultaneously.
- Suspend and resume doesn’t work on some targets.
